An unbelivable tour, lots of jets, many things to see, friendly volunteers, many good gifts to buy. A must go in San Diego!
Best tour ever! If youre a Top Gun fan or a military enthusiast - this is a must!
Very insightful tour, very informative about the history of the battle, the ship and planes etc. Highly recommended.
Skip the line very quick and hassle free.
Very enjoyable museum with lots to see.
Fascinating, educational and very informative. Great experience not to be missed. Highlight of San Diego.
Very informative staff. The audio tour was at your leisure when you approached each exhibit which was nice. Well organized. We learned lots that we didnt know about the ship, planes and the battles of WWII
Excellent. especially the self-guided tour, every young person should take this tour to experience, learn and appreciate what a country can accomplish and protect itself, the very reason why America is as great a country as she is.
Well worth a visit. Excellent museum and an absolute must in San Diego. Just to realise the size of this ship is amazing. Don't miss it! And with Viator tickets, we skipped the line. Excellent!
This Viator tour was awesome! Very interesting and fun seeing so many cool things aboard the ship! It saved us 10.00 and we skipped the line where everyone else was buying their tickets. My husband said If this really works and it's really this easy he will be very surprised!....well it was that easy...we bought our tickets while standing in front of the USS Midway Museum click done and they scanned my phone the bar code done! That easy. I would definitely recommend using Viator! Thank you Viator.
I went on this one rather reluctantly. We ended up spending three hours on the midway. The history was interesting, but what engaged me most was listening to vets who had served on the midway and are now docents. They were so passionate about what they had done and how wonderful the ship was that I left feeling like I had had a truly genuine experience. Went to late afternoon and the weekday in January. Very few tourists/visitors. A tour I would definitely recommend.
The Midway museum is great. We spent 5 hours on it and could have spent more. The docents were all extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. My cousin and his wife from out of town loved it.
If you haven't been, you are missing one of the best things to do in San Diego.
